Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Tantrum


“Where are you going Tabby? I just filled your bowl with fresh food. You know how much you appreciate the vitamin pellets when they are fresh from the paket.”

“And you know how to trick me into eating them. You mix the vitamin pellets from yesterday with the fresh ones. Very clever, but I saw through the trick. Some days you do not add new pellets and so I am left with old stale pellets.”

“That is not true Tabby, vitamin pellets do not get stale.”

“Of course they don’t, they are already dry and old when you buy them. I can chew on them and force them down my throat and they even get stuck on the way. The only positive thing about vitamin pellets, is that they are a good ingredient for hair balls. They bind the hairs together.”

“But you cannot eat tuna fish every day.”

“Why not? If we lived in a place where there was an ocean, it would be the main part of my diet. I want tuna fish.”

“Tabby stop stamping your paw, today there are vitamin pellets.”

“And tomorrow as well and the day after, and if by some strange coincidence the supermarket might have a special offer for tuna fish, I might get a bowl some time during the week. That is not the way to treat a feline that was once worshipped as a god.”

“But if you had tuna fish every day, it would no longer be something special and it would become boring.”

“Try me Mrs. Human, and I can assure you not as boring as the daily vitamin pellet ration. I will go on a hunger strike until I get my rightful food.”

“But you will starve.”

“No way, I have an arrangement with Roschti, the feline next door. His human also feeds him vitamin pellets. When he gets tuna fish, he will share with me and when I get tuna fish I will share with him.”

“I thought “share” did not exist in meow.”

“It doesn’t, but emergency situations call for a special strategy.”

  1. Oh Tabby, if you have to stomp your paw, it must be dark times, but, I have to tell you. A cat’s paw makes no sound at all. It’s a completely futile action on your part unless someone’s watching. So make sure, OK? Yr Pal and stragedist, Martha
